A Curriculum and Methods Handbook for the Seasonally Employed Agricultural Workers' Program.
A program for coping with the needs of functionally illiterate persons that focuses on the rural population of seasonal farm workers is described in this handbook. The program starts with emphasis on satisfying life's basic needs and annihilating the fear of want while exposing participants to new techniques to prepare them for the labor market. Guidelines and suggestions are presented for teachers of semi-illiterate agricultural workers. Suggestions are included for curriculum and daily planning, instructional program objectives and skills, and methods and techniques. Communicative skills, computative skills, social studies, and interrelated instructional areas are considered under the instructional program discussion. The methods and techniques section presents 3 phases of classroom procedure: (1) orientation, (2) determining levels of trainees, and (3) methods and techniques. Materials and devices currently utilized in the program are presented in the concluding sections. Related documents are ED 018 752 and RC 003 814. (SW)
